It's Groundhog Day, and predictions are rolling in from rodents across the country.

In Lancaster County, Octoraro Orphie in Quarryville and Mount Joy Minnie both predicted six more weeks of winter.

Mount Joy Chamber of Commerce coordinator Kerry Meyers reported that about 60 people braved 4-degree weather to hear handler Nancy Shonk read Mount Joy Minnie's Groundhog Day Proclamation.

"Unfortunately Minnie saw her shadow, so she has predicted six more weeks of winter," she said. "The crowd was not very happy, but many did stick around to have their photo taken with Minnie."

William Forrey, who holds the position of “Orphie’s Lip” within the Slumbering Groundhog Lodge in Quarryville, said several hundred people turned out for the festivities there. 

"He saw his shadow, so it’s six more weeks of winter," Forrey said of Orphie.

Of the atmosphere, he said, "It's nice; there's no wind, there’s bright sunshine, snow on the ground: just an exhilarating morning here at the chateau at White Rock."

Elsewhere, Punxsutawney Phil and Staten Island Chuck predicted early spring.
